    These are beautiful photographs. Simply splendid. Have you considered submitting to Wash Post on NYTimes? I don’t know if they do this, but maybe they keep a binder or disc of photographs to use for specific travel articles. I see a second career for you (and Nienke). Stop fighting it.

    You must remember that we couldn’t tell the difference between your photographs and those from National Geographic.

    Also, I love the way you’ve organized the panels.
